About the Book
William Henry "Lone Star" Dietz (1884-1964), the most colorful coach to grace a sideline, is as controversial 40 years after his death as he was in life. Artist, teacher, actor, writer, championship dog breeder and athlete -- teammate of Jim Thorpe on the legendary Carlisle Indian School football teams and protege of Glenn S. "Pop" Warner -- Dietz was truly a Renaissance man. Mostly forgotten for a half century were it not for the Redskins naming controversy, Lone Star's story deserves to be told--and it finally is.
